Slayton
History and Sociology of Science and Technology
Assistant Professor
Cornell University

Rebecca Slayton is Assistant Professor in the Department of Science & Technology Studies and the Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies, both at Stanford University. Her research examines how experts assess the promise and risks of complex technology, how they make their claims politically persuasive, and how these processes shape intertwined systems of technology and governance. Her book, Arguments that Count: Physics, Computing, and Missile Defense, 1949-2012 (MIT Press, 2013), shows how public debate and scientific advising on missile defense changed with the rise of software engineering and concerns about the risks of complex technological systems. In addition to publications in physics and the sociology of science and technology, she has published articles and essays on computing in History and Technology, IEEE Annals of the History of Computing, and Applied Clinical Informatics.

I am a PhD Student in American Studies studying how technology and media have affected American culture. I am specifically interested in the development of new media and computer technology, and my dissertation deals with how the advent of personal computers affected the American private sphere. Finally, I am also involved with various digital humanities research and initiatives.

I'm not a professional historian, I'm a practitioner with a desire to know more of technology's history, and to become better versed in the critical discourse surrounding it. In my work I focus on open, verifiable Internet measurement and research, usable open-source privacy and security tools, open-source "critical infrastructure" and how to keep it healthy (the core assumptions many rely on, but few maintain). I'm interested in these things, other things, and in developing a better critical approach to computing and technology and their role.

Bloomberg Businessweek

Graduated 2013 from Bowdoin College with a bachelor's degree in Math; now doing data graphics, web graphics, news apps, and a smattering of other stuff for Bloomberg Businessweek. Followed a link by Paul Ford (@ftrain on Twitter) to this list. Interested in interfaces and cybernetics, steering systems. Don't really have a clue what I'm doing, but it seems to orbit those interests. Pursued an independent study in mathematical notation as an interface that didn't really go anywhere. I hope to finish it one day.
